The Big Event by Anne John-Ligali,

The Big Event

You are cordially invited to the party of the season where you’ll meet Constance and friends in action.

Constance Jeffries is excited when she gets the chance to meet up with virtual friends at a get-together in a London hotel. She’s been tweeting and messaging her lovely friends for years and feels they must be just as excited to finally meet her in person too. Or so she hopes.

The Big Event is first part in a short story series about the importance of ‘real’ friendships and how it’s the little things that matter the most.

My Review

This is an incredibly poignant short story that will resonate with so many people.

Wrapped up in a parcel of Christmas sparkle, twinkling fairy lights, and glittering characters,  there is a harsh lesson for us all, to closely examine our friendships, both real and virtual.

The top layer is light-hearted, funny and full of Christmas cheer, but peel away the layers to reveal the real truth.

Thank you to Rachel @rararesources and Anne John-Ligali for supplying me with a copy of #TheBigEvent in exchange for an honest review.
